Giants are also checking out Ed Dickson.
Whadda y'all think about the Ravens drafting well and then not re-signing their own free agents? Did that ridiculous contract for their QB screw up their plans?

I've been telling Ravens fans it would bite them, just like it did with the Giants.

Flacco AND Eli are both making top money simply because they were in the right place at the right time. They're good but not deserving of salaries that the top QBs in the game get.




I have not noticed many mentions of CB Vontae Davis. He's expected to re-sign with Indy but there's rumored to be a mystery team pursuing him. Some say it's the Jets but I wonder if we've kicked the tires.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

the lions, bears and ravens all overpaid their QBs, so yeah, i'd say it's hurt them all a bit.

It would be like having Champ Bailey back but on the wrong end of the player's career....talented but gets tired of being here quickly.

He has the talent to be the best, but he doesn't always use it. There's a reason the "best" corner in the game can't stick with a team.

The Bucs have a lot of cap space. They can afford to keep him, they simply do not want him on their team any more.


I predict he'll end up in Oakland. They have the money to spend and the track record of taking on these players.
The Bucs dont want him since he is a man to man corner and they dont play man to man, they are a zone team. Lovie Smith doesnt need a shut down corner for the defense that he runs, he runs a cover 2 most of the time. No reason to pay for Revis when you plan on making him play to his weaknesses and not his strengths (zone instead of man to man). Thats just good business sense on Lovie's part, not anything to do with Revis being terrible.

Players can get cut even when producing. The owners are in this to make money, why shouldnt the players be as well. Of course he wanted more money, he was the main reason their defense was a top defense. Why did the Jets make it to the AFC championship game? Primarily because of Revis shutting down the number 1 receiver every game. It certainly wasnt because of Sanchez. When did Revis quit on the Jets? He outplayed everyone else when he was on the field.

Revis also didnt hold out after those two years. He said he was thinking about it, but showed up and played under his existing contract. Then tore his ACL early that year. His missed time was due to an injury.

He then signed with Tampa with zero guaranteed money. Zero... Saying he would rather earn each years salary instead of having it guaranteed.

The NFL doesnt have guaranteed contracts, of course the players want to get paid in their prime. Is that some kind of a surprise to anyone? Loyalty is a two way street. The owners show no loyalty to players, why is it expected back?

Don't forget Dallas.

They literally have no money to spend today, unless they let Ware go somewhere else.

Romo is living large though.

Romos deal was ridiculous. His deal runs through 2019 when he will be 39 years old. He isnt Manning/Brady, just crazy contract.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

Bengals re-signed Brandon Tate, probably so I'm guessing they won't re-sign Hawkins too.

Anthony Collins expected to sign with Tampa Bay if he doesn't stay with Cincy.

Bengals matched the Browns offer for Hawkins per NFLN.

Re: Current 2014 Free Agents

Redskins sign big name free agents, OH MY GOD SNYDER IS OUT OF CONTROL!

Redskin sign role players to modest contracts, OH MY GOD REDSKINS FAIL IN FREE AGENCY!

I'm all for not looking at the team with rose colored glasses but my God there has to be some sense of moderation.

I never understood the rush to get rid of Romo in Dallas. Redskin fans can certainly vouch for the difficulty in finding stability at the QB position. Never mind finding a QB that qualifies for multiple pro bowls as well as multiple seasons with 30+ TD passes.

I get you all, and signing role players is exactly what we need to do. Its just they AREN'T signing those role players to the most defective unit on the squad by far, and some of these young up and comers were available on the cheap it looks like. We all like that Allen is frugal, but has he taken it to the next level? Are we gonna roll out with the same secondary next year? The question mark that is the secondary DOES need to be addressed, and I wish they would.
